My best advice to the previous comment is to simply take your own advice: if you don't like it, go elsewhere. Chris writes about things that happen in her life, and it's up to the reader to decide whether it's relevant to them or whether they'd like to read it. Personal anecdotes are what make the columns more relatable, and the wrinkle story sure gave me a good laugh. From what I know about Chris, she's a talented writer and does a great deal for our community... surely anyone who follows her column, as you do, would know this. She certainly must have had a positive impact on the school children she spoke to--that was made clear by what the young girl wrote about the impact "Twist of Fate" had on her. This was profound enough for me. Next time, you ought to remember perhaps one of the simplest lessons we learned as children: if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.
Thank you, Chris, for making my day a little brighter each time I read your column. I'm also really enjoying the dog story! Keep up the stellar work!Feb 22, 2012
